Beautiful Giant Hugs with Mona!

Happy Friday friends! Today Mona joins us to share an amazing “hug in a card”! She combined Giant Sending Big Hugs and Happy Hugs to create a gorgeous and unique card design!

In order to create this unique design, Mona dry embossed Giant Sending Big Hugs on a white cardstock panel. To dry-emboss you will need a rubber embossing mat, it will allow the die to emboss the image without cutting the paper.

Now comes the oh-so clever part of this unique design! Mona used masking paper to cut a mask with Giant Sending Big Hugs. After she covered the embossed sentiment with the mask, she ink blended the background. Then she used the Scene Builder Stencils: Bayou and continued ink-blending. The final step was for Mona to remove the mask and color the sentiment!

I love how Mona used the cute critters in an embrace to fill in for the “hugs” in the Giant Sending Big Hugs greeting! To put together this sweet Autumn vignette, Mona combined critters from Happy Hugs with Scootin’ By! Then she added pumpkins and falling leaves from Happy Harvest, Jump for Joy and Let’s Go Nuts!

I absolutely love this creative card, Mona! Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

Renata’s Out of this World Big Hugs Card

Happy Monday, friends! Renata joins us today to start the week with some fantastic inspiration! Her card combines Giant Sending Big Hugs with Out of this World!

To create a fun “out of this world” background, Renata combined Distress Oxide ink blending, splatters and glittery stars ! She die cut Giant Sending Big Hugs from holographic cardstock to add lots of fun!

To finish her space-theme design, Renata stamped and colored the images from Out of this World and popped them up with foam adhesive! I love how she used Ocean Sparkle cord as our cute astronaut’s tether!

Sweet Inspiration with Karin!

We are so excited! It’s almost time to share our new Summer Release! Inspiration and Release Week starts on Wednesday, June 16th with our Big Giveaway Post! Save the date and join us as we introduce our amazing new stamps, dies, stencils and a beautiful new paper collection!

Happy Sunday, friends! Karin joins us today with a couple of adorable cards that are sure to brighten someone’s day!

Karin’s Happy Hugs design is so beautifully clean and simple with a pretty tone-on-tone backdrop! She used the negative of the Giant Sending Big Hugs die popped up on a Fancy Scalloped Rectangle panel to create depth and dimension.

The cute Happy Hugs critters add a pop of adorable color to Karin’s sweet design!

For this card featuring Dandy Day, Karin created a window to frame a cute little scene. She ink blended the background, then she added Birch Trees and a Grassy Border. The lovely sentiment is from Bicycle Built for You.

Karin colored her images with Copic markers, giving them sweet pink cheeks and ears! For an additional bit of design, she colored the flower and vine from Acorn House in similar colors to decorate the top of the circle window.


Thank you so much, Karin! These two cards are so sweet and so cute!
